Meanwhile, Sevilla head to Atletico Madrid while Real Madrid are at Real Sociedad
The penultimate round of matches in Spain’s La Liga sees most attention turning to the battle for a place in the top four. This coming Sunday afternoon (12 May) all teams kick off at the same time, which sees Getafe make the trip to recent crowned league champions Barcelona, Sevilla head to Atletico Madrid, and Real Madrid look to end the season on a positive note as they visit Real Sociedad.

Where should I be investing my money?
First up, let’s start with the clash between Barcelona and Getafe at Camp Nou. Barça may have been crowned league champions in Spain but they are reeling from their elimination from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Liverpool, as well as their last domestic defeat to Celta Vigo – the Catalan giants have lost their last two matches by an aggregate score of 6-0.
Getafe, by way of comparison, have been in patchy form themselves of late, winning just two of their last five league outings, although they have lost just once in that time. They currently occupy fourth spot, three points ahead of Valencia in fifth, and are priced at just 1.90 to finish in the top four.
Nevertheless, it is Barcelona who come into this match as the clear favourites to take all three points. You can back the home side to win at just 1.53, while Getafe are out at 6.00 to do the same – a draw is priced in the middle at 4.33, according to Oddsshark.
And we are expecting Barça to bounce back in style. A 3-0 win for the champions is priced competitively at 11.00, thereby offering more than a ten-fold return on any investment, while you can double your money by backing a “No” to both teams scoring at 2.00.
Atletico Madrid welcome Sevilla to the capital
Meanwhile, Atletico Madrid take on Sevilla having already wrapped up second place. The side have won four of their last five league contests although they did lose last time out.
Sevilla, meanwhile, appear to be in free fall. They have lost three of their last four matches in La Liga, have slipped down to sixth and are now all the way out at 17.00 to finish the season in the top four.
And while the betting is tight, it is Atletico who come in as the favourites to pick up the points. You can more than double your money by backing the home side to win at 2.10, while Sevilla are out at 3.40 to do the same – a draw would appear to be the least likely outcome and is priced accordingly at 3.60.
But with something to strive for, we believe that Sevilla will do enough to snatch the points. A narrow, 2-1 win for the visitors comes in at 11.00, meaning that a US$5 bet would lead to a US$55 pay out, while a combo bet of a Sevilla win, coupled with both teams to score, is at 6.00.
Real Madrid look to end poor season on a high
And finally, Real Sociedad welcome Real Madrid with the away team looking to put a positive spin on a dreadful season. Real Sociedad sit ninth in the table and have won their last two league contests on the bounce.
Real Madrid, meanwhile, have won just two of their last five and must be desperate for the current campaign to end. Manager Zinedine Zidane has a huge rebuilding project to kick off over the summer and there should be a lot of turnover at the club over the coming months.
Again, the betting is close, but it is Real Madrid who come into this match as the slight favourites to take the points. You can more than double your money by backing the visitors to win at 2.30 while Real Sociedad, despite home advantage, are out at 3.00 to do the same – again, a draw comes in highest of all at 3.60.
But we think that home advantage could well be a decisive factor in this fixture. A 1-0 win for Real Sociedad comes in at 13.00, while you can more than double your money by backing under 2.5 goals in the game at 2.37.
